I'll pass on the sandwich and cake and go for a beer instead.

Anything beyond dictation is bias.

This is a mantra that is repeated by all the big name reporters

A BLT and a beer would be nice, but I'd pass on the cake.

For anyone who hasn't read it, read Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and loathing on the campaign trail 72. It was so groundbreaking in its access and candor that it's a classic, and in doing so guaranteed that no level of media access to a presidential campaign would ever be allowed again. Amazing to see how far reporting has fallen.

/yes, even those who didn't like "Fear and loathing in Las Vegas" - IMO it's a much better piece of writing, but your mileage may vary I guess

As a spokesman for the public, I can safely say that we want a bj and a steak.

I think I'm a pretty swell guy.

Not me I want a pizza. I only indulge myself once a month on a large BBQ Hawian Chicken pizza with extra ham from a local mom and pop place. It is probably 4000 calories and simply a little slice of heaven.

What's it called again, when the government insists on having the last word on what the press can and cannot publish?
